Part flesh, part felt and packed with heart, AVENUE Q is a laugh-out-loud musical telling the timeless story of a bright-eyed college grad named Princeton. When he arrives in the city with big dreams and a tiny bank account, he has to move into a shabby apartment all the way out on AVENUE Q. Still, the neighbors seem nice. There, he meets Kate (the girl next door), Lucy (the slut), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the internet entrepreneur), superintendent Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman) and other new friends! Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

01-28-2019 - 02-11-2019

A Variation on Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice. Love and litigation, deep passions, and predatory lending are taken to a new level in this uneasy comedy, which wades fearlessly into the endless complexities and contradictions of life in America. Set among the Black and Jewish populations of an imagined time and place—simultaneously Shakespearean, post-Civil War Washington, DC, and today, a remarkable tale of money, merchandise, and mercy. It explores race, religion, power and money in America that feels all too contemporary.  Talkbacks scheduled after the 1/31 and 2/7 performance facilitated by Jennifer Wintzer, Associate Artistic Director, Shakespeare Festival St. Louis

 

Directed by Jacqueline Thompson; Cast: Gary Wayne Barker, J Samuel Davis, Courtney Bailey Parker, Alicen Moser, Erika Flowers, Karl Hawkins.

Written by David Davalos;

 

It’s October 1517, and the new fall semester at the University of Wittenberg finds certain members of the faculty and student body at personal and professional crossroads. Hamlet (senior, class of 1518) is returning from a summer in Poland spent studying astronomy, where he has come in contact with a revolutionary scientific theory that threatens the very order of the universe, resulting in psychic trauma and a crisis of faith for him. His teacher and mentor John Faustus (Professor of Philosophy) has decided at long last to make an honest woman of his paramour, Helen, a former nun who is now one of the Continent's most sought-after courtesans. And Faustus' colleague and Hamlet's instructor and priest, Martin Luther (Professor of Theology), is dealing with the spiritual and medical consequences of his long-simmering outrage at certain abusive practices of the Church. Tavern disputes, tennis duels, 16th century lounge hits, and the slings and arrows of outrageous wit will tickle your brain into overdrive.

 

With Casey Boland, Steve Isom, Alan Knoll, and Caitlin Mickey. Directed by Philip Boehm.

 

Talkback will be held after February 3rd performance.

01-29-2019 - 03-03-2019 5:00 pm

The Bonsack Gallery opens "1968: A Portrait of Rock & Roll" with a reception on Friday, January 18 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The exhibition includes vintage rock posters from the collection of Ted L. and Maryanne Ellison Simmons; vintage photographs by Baron Wolman, Rolling Stone magazine’s chief photographer between 1967 and 1971; display pages from vintage Rolling Stone magazines loaned by J. Appel Photographs; and a collection of record albums from 1968. Visitors to the gallery will also hear a curated playlist from that year. 

 

As music journalist Chris King writes in the exhibition notes, “the second half of 1968 was relatively quiet on the streets of America — quiet compared to widespread riots in the aftermath of the assassination of a nonviolent protest leader — but loud with transformative rock ‘n’ roll. In August, Janis Joplin’s band, Big Brother and the Holding Company, released Cheap Thrills. Jimi Hendrix released Electricladyland in September. The Beatles released the self-titled, white-covered record known as The White Album in November. And their fellow British rivals The Rolling Stones released Beggars Banquet in December. Rock music continued to evolve and shoot off sparks, even if ‘the incredible springtime’ that ushered in the ‘Summer of Love’ was over.” Some of those sparks included art and street fashion, including the hippie style on display in Wolman’s portraits of rock artists like Jim Morrison, Hendrix and Joplin. The concert posters and handbills in the exhibit mirror the flamboyance of the era’s music, with their combination of Pop Art colors, nonlinear typefaces and surreal imagery.

 

During the run of the exhibition, visitors may purchase raffle tickets ($10, or 5 for $40) to win a signed Baron Wolman photograph of their choice. Tickets may be purchased at the opening reception on January 18, and will be available at the John Burroughs School bookstore through the run of the show. All proceeds go to the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund. 1968 closes on Wednesday, February 20. 

 

The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays.
